Street Smarts by Bianca Sommerland

The one time geeky high school teacher, Rupert ‘Rip’ Martinez, tries to play the hero, it almost costs him his life. Maybe he should leave the rescuing to the tough guys, like the man who saved him, Otto Shriver. Tattoos, dog tags, and a heart of gold, Otto is exactly the type of man Rip would go for.

In his dreams.

When socially awkward meets carefree and confident, it’s probably best they go their separate ways. Their only excuse to ever see one another again is an adorable pup in need of a good home.

Unless they really don’t need any excuses at all.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is a really, really easy and enjoyable read. Ms. Sommerland has once again come up with a fresh take on the story of love and given us another book to devour. Once you've started, you will just want to read to the end, so make sure you have a good sized time window in your future.

The differences between the two men are significant, yet they make the effort to find that they match in all the most important ways. Rip may seem like the luckier of the two, but that is soon nixed, as we get the 'pleasure' of finding out about his parents. Cruella was kinder to her puppies that his mother is to him. Otto's past life as a Marine, and now as a dog trainer, give him an interesting mix of strength and empathy. He needs all his patience and charm to help Rip move towards their much happier future.

I really rather hope that we get to know more of these two men, even if another story concentrates on another couple. I will definitely reread this story when I want a short fix of sexy and uplifting.

Tell you about me? Hmm, well, there’s not much to say. I love hockey and cars and my kids…not in that order of course! Lol! When I’m not writing—which isn’t often—I’m usually watching a game or a car show while networking. Going out with my kids is my only downtime. I get to clear my head and forget everything.

As for when and why I first started writing, I guess I thought I’d get extra cookies if I was quiet for a while—that’s how young I was. I used to bring my grandmother barely legible pages filled with tales of evil unicorns. She told me then that I would be a famous author.

I hope one day to prove her right.
